The Denver Nuggets are happy to get this game at home, but they can’t be happy with the form their next opponent comes to town in. The Toronto Raptors just concluded a perfect homestand and bring a double-digit winning streak to town on Monday.

The team hasn’t lost in nearly four weeks following a 7-0 homestand that lengthened their winning streak to 11 games.
The Raptors extended their winning streak with a win over the Detroit Pistons on Saturday, but the team nearly let that one get away from them. Toronto led 98-78 with less than six minutes to play but allowed the Pistons to claw back in an eventual 111-107 victory.
Toronto’s winning streak started with four road victories, but that may not continue unless the team can get back to shooting well from the field.
The Raptors have shot 44.6 percent from the floor in their last three games after hitting on 49.5 percent from the field in their previous six games.
The Nuggets allowed DeMar DeRozan to score 34 points the last time these teams met, a 106-105 win for the Nuggets on Dec. 3. Denver got 22 points off the bench from Will Barton in that one, and Danilo Gallinari chipped in 21.
The Nuggets have lost five of their last seven games despite getting 23.0 points per contest from Gallinari.
The team dropped its last game in a competitive contest, losing the game late against the Indiana Pacers in a 109-105 overtime defefat.

As for the Nuggets, they’ve had trouble closing the deal in recent outings, and that’s going to mean trouble against a Raptors team playing at a very high level.
Toronto’s had some trouble making the trip out to Denver in the past, but the talent gap between these teams at the moment is so wide, an upset is hard to envision.
